Default Hardware (??) issue ?


Just wondering as the shop said it was a software problem, but my system would keep hanging up start up, when I tried to fix with winXP cd, it said a problem in hardware, either Memory type is mismatched, or something is wrong with video adapter.

Purely hardware, or perhaps something to do with video / monitor drivers ?

Try to remove one of your Memory sticks if you have 2 it sounds like you do. Then if no help switch to the other one.
